The New York Giants vs. Atlanta Falcons will face off in a simulated Madden 20 game Thursday at 2:00 p.m. ET, and DraftKings will have DFS contests available for the matchup. We break down the ideal showdown lineup strategy, and you can set your lineup here.
Darius Slayton, WR, Giants ($9,600)
Slayton is one of the best value value captain’s plays you can make. He’s been more productive than Golden Tate, Evan Engram, and Sterling Shepard. He also won’t cost you a ton like Saquon Barkley. His price makes getting Barkley, Julio Jones, and other highly rated players in the flex with room to spare.
Saquon Barkley, RB, Giants ($14,100)
Barkley has the highest ceiling on the Giants because of his versatility. Jones has a better rating, but Barkley gets more guaranteed touches. Both sides have significant options on the offensive end, but Barkley’s consistent involvement gives him a leg up.
Daniel Jones, WR, Giants ($10,000)
Jones is tied with Barkley for the highest DKFP per game (18.5). You typically have to pick a quarterback to be successful, and Jones can be just as good as Matt Ryan for cheaper. Jones also has a more dynamic pass catcher at running back than Ryan in Barkley.
Calvin Ridley, WR, Falcons ($6,800)
Ridley explodes and has a big game from time to time, and has yet to dip below double-digits in three games straight. Jones is a waste if he doesn’t absolutely dominate, so Ridley seems like the smarter play.
